Hidden Patterns of Life

It’s hard to believe but we’re almost half way through the year – still struggeling with the weather conditions but sometimes we have to deal with things that we simply can’t change! Speaking of change - i’ve been a little M.I.A. over the last few weeks which is something that i’ve been feeling for a while now. April has been a month full of ups and downs which told me that something inside me or the way i was doing things needed to be addressed. As mentally active as i am it’s easy to get caught up in past life patterns of thinking and actions. And even though these kind of phases of your life can create circumstances that you’re unhappy about, it can be another lesson to learn from and to change your life with a new way of thinking which often comes with the need to step back in order to find your inner piece before you continue to repeat the same situation/pattern over and over again. So other than that patterns also play a big part of today’s look which is hopefully the last one where you see me wearing a winter coat and layers like there is no tomorrow.

Carpe Diem | Matcha Green Tea

It’s safe to say that over the last few years Matcha has become increasingly popular all over the world. It’s one of the most powerful super foods out there which contains amazingly high levels of antioxidants, which not only prevents damage to the brain cells but it’s also praised for its energy-enhancing, metabolism-boosting properties. This green powder, that has been a major part of Japanese culture for centuries, is truly a miracle! It can be consumed as tea but it’s also well-loved as a frequently requested addition to lattes, soy and fruit drinks and smoothies! For that reason, Carpe Diem decided to create its very own vegan Matcha Sparkling Green Tea for which i’m proud to be one of their new digital ambassdores and got the chance to create a new editorial inspired by Japanese culture. The drink itself consists of natural ingredients which is an amazing alternative for ice tea and lemonande since you will find less sugar in this green little bottle. So if you’re curious how it tastes when Matcha meets greent tea, nashi pear and ginger i have some news for you -  Carpe Diem Matcha is already available in shops! Hope you will love it as much as i do! Happy Weekend everyone!

Weekday Opening | Vienna

People, get excited – there’s a new kid on the block! The hight street store ‚Weekday’ finally opens here in Vienna and i’m super excited to be invited to the pre-opening which will take place tonight! I first walked into one of their their stores back in September in Berlin where i was invited to the Lollapaloozza Festival and couldn’t resist checking everything which was locted right next to the hotel. Of course Weekday was high on the list since it claims to be a modern and mindful fashion and denim brand offering international fashion influenced by Scandinavian style. Back then i found a lot of good stuff and ended up buying this amazing top which is still one of my favorite things to wear!

Lucky me i got the chance to pick out a few pieces of their current collection and since i’m such a huge fan of turtleneck sweaters i went for this amazing leather top. The neckline is abviously my obsession but also the blouse underneath (which you can check out at my dear blogger colleague Carola's latest blogpost) makes this look even more special! Another great key piece is this washed out denim jacket that gives the whole look a little bit more dimension!

So if you’re planning to stop by at the official opening on the 8th of April i have amazing news for you guys! The first 100 customers get a free pair of Jeans! So make sure to be one of those lucky people!

Festival Vibes

Just because Coachella is over in California doesn’t mean we have to miss out on all the style fun! It’s true that festivals became some sort of a grown up costume party experience where you get the chance to rock those typical boho-chic 70’s inspired pieces you would only tend to wear at the beach. Wether you’re a nostalgic rocker girl or a bohemian babe there are so many ways to channel your inner 70’s flower with chic and stylish outfits. FlaredJeans, Lace Tops or airy Dresses are by far my favorite options but one of the easiest way to transform your daily look is definitely to add fringe like i did in this case with this jacket from Tally Weijl – it’s simply the texture and movement that not only makes me want to dance but also gives me the ulltimate summer feeling at the same time!

Grey on Grey

Being surrounded by nature and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life is probably one of the best things i can do for myself in order to recharge energy – and that’s exactly what i did when when i spend a few days in my Hometown. It was all about spending relaxing hours with the family and visting places that I haven’t seen in a very long time! So for this specific weekend i opted for super cozy looks like this grey ond grey option which is something that i usually don’t wear! A simple mix of black, white and denim never fails but this combo definitely make you feel instantly put together without a lot of effort!
